A couple in Houston,Texas forced a Nigerian woman to take care of their five children along with their home neglecting to pay her for a two-year period. Police said the woman was beaten, verbally abuse , forced to work twenty hour days and made to sleep on the floor.
Police arrested Chudy and Sandra Nsobundu on Monday on charges, including forced labor and withholding documents. Investigators said that the Nsobundu couple stole the woman’s passport preventing her from leaving.
The thirty-eight year old nanny was promised one hundred dollars a month but never received a dime.
The case stems from a tip received in October 2015 by the National Human Trafficking Resource Center. It is unclear at this time who made the tip.
Chudy and Sandra Nsobundu if convicted, could face twenty years in prison.
